as president of the united states. [applause] look around you, everyone. this has been the most diverse, most inclusive convention ever held anywhere in the united states of america. [applause] a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriages equality as a basic human right. [applause] and this is the reflection of who we are as a party and who we can be as a nation. because as democrats, as americans, whenever we have opened up our party and our country, whenever we have opened up our doors for more of our people, whenever we deepen our democracy and renew our commitment to equal justice under the law, we have grown stronger as a nation. last week, in tampa, we were promised hard truths. they were right about one thing -- the truth was hard to find. [applause] that is why they did not talk about their plan to cut taxes for millionaires by raising taxes on middle-class families with kids, on your family, by $2,000. they did not talk about their plan to replace the guarantee of medicare with a coupon, with a voucher t

pelley. >> pelley: good evening. high stakes here tonight for the president of the united states as he tries for a breakout moment in this dead-heat race for the white house. barack obama will accept the nomination of his party, but under very different circumstances than his first nomination. in 2008, he was leading a movement for hope and change. tonight, he hopes that the voters impatient with the economy will not seek change again so soon. in his speech tonight, mr. obama will say that the american people face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. our campaign 2012 correspondents are covering the convention, and, first, we're going to go to nancy cordes, who has found out more of what the president will say. nancy. >> reporter: scott, obama campaign officials tell us that tuesday night michelle obama was about the president's character, and last night with president clinton was about his record and tonight will be about the future. they say president obama will make it very clear where he wants to take this country in a second term. and we just received excerpts from the

for the united states and the things that he's done for humanity, what a credible voice tonight. what a credible voice. as much as he has been through, as much as he was targeted, he can speak from experience and say i never hated those guys. i wanted to get something done, and he did. i thought he spoke very well to the economy tonight too. he made the case about the philosophy of success, about, you know, wealthy people doing a little bit more because they can. i mean, i thought he had a great -- >> i think before you lead the hate part, because he talked about people proud of being -- their kids being born in america, which referred to this is a deeper and different kind of hate. they hated hillary clinton for what she wanted to do. they hated him for what they wanted to do. they hate president obama because of what he wants to do and because of what he is. that's what he was eluding to. which was a different hate than bill clinton. they never asked bill clinton for his birth certificate. so he understands the levels of hate here. as much as they fought hillary and him, they never asked him f
declining where the american dream is really alive and well again, and where the united states maintains its leadership as a force for peace and justice and prosperity in this highly competitive world, you have to vote for barack obama. [ applause ] i love our country so much. and i know we're coming back, for more than 200 years through every crisis we've always come back. people have predicted our demise ever since george washington was criticized for being a mediocre surveyor with a bad set of wooden false teeth. and so far every single person that's bet against america has lost money because we always come back. we come through every fire a little stronger and a little better. and we do it because in the end we decide to champion the cause for which our founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor. the cause of forming a more perfect union. my fellow americans, if that is what you want, if that is what you believe, you must vote and you must re-elect president barack obama!

barak obama, president of the united states. democrats believe in reigniting the american dream by removing barriers to success and building ladders of opportunity for all. so that everyone can succeed. jobs are central to the american dream. and president obama has focused on jobs from day one. under president obama we've gone from losing 800,000 jobs a month to adding 4.5 million private sector jobs over the last 29 months. the american dream is about freedom. jobs means freedom. for workers to support their families. working with president obama, democrats passed a lilly better pay fair act to strengthen women's rights in the workplace. we repealed don't ask don't tell so our troops can serve the country they love regardless of whom they love. we made college more affordable. house democrats passed the dream act. but senate republicans blocked it. with president obama, democrats enacted the toughest consumer safeguards in history. to protect main street from wrecklessness of some on wall street. democrats passed healthcare reform to allow americans the freedom to pursue their
is for the future of the united states. speechthat tonight's with the president certainly does not cast disparaging notes to the republican party which, as an independent, they are do nothing parties for the last couple of years and it seems like the president currently has been the most disrespectful in my lifetime. that is unfortunate and sad for our country. we have to be reminded that we are in a global recession. it is not just the united states. i hope the president tonight gives us a better insight not just on how he will work more broadly, i think that is a dead issue. the difficulties he faces is more of a communicating issue. he has not done an effective job of communicating that to the american people. i thank you for your time. host: we have been watching live images from the cspan crew on the ground outside the convention center here in uptown charlotte. the vendors are selling their wares, everything from 2012 democrat buttons to barack obama faces. someone put the mask on with a smiling president. the media is gathered at the convention center. caucuses anden's pro-israel caucuses. t
american forces, became two-term president of the united states and the for some reason the los angeles press corps was paralyzed in place. so i stepped forward and i began asking questions of what i called, general eisenhower. i didn't call him the president because, to me had always been a general. we had really good exchange. and in which he said he wanted reagan to run as a favorite son in six at this it. -- '68. you thought that with be good for the party around good for the country. that was in his own way a shot at rich richard nixon. >> guest: boom, you write, one minute ike and man in gray flannel suit in the lonely crowd and next minute, tune on, tune in, drop out, time for we shall overcome and burn baby burn. while americans were walking on the moon, americans were dying in vietnam. there were assassinations and riots. jackie kennedy became jackie o. ty e-die shirts rpt martin luther king, jr. george wallace, tom hayden and. mick jagger and wayne newton. well you get the idea, boom. >> guest: i don't want to overstate this seldom in our recent history at least has there been
the very stylish, 34-year-old first lady of the united states surrounded by all these dashing people and then that came to an end. and the war began to heat up and suddenly the country seemed, seemed to come unhinged in a way. all the values of the world war ii generation come home with challenged within their own families. institutions of government, place of government in our lives. the idea of loyaltity and patriotism all went out the window. civil rights movement went from nonviolent movement led by dr. king depending on rule of law, it went to the streets. you know, violence in america is as as american as cherry pie. so it was a, it was a head-snapping time. there was no question about it and the fact that we emerged from it and reasonably good shape is still fairly astonishing to me. it is a real tribute to the tense aisle strength of this country in a lot of ways. >> host: i began my marriage, tom brokaw writes and my career as journalist in 1962, a straight arrow product of the 1960s. by the time decade was over i had my first taste of the marijuana, i had long hair and week
.s. cabinet and on the united states supreme court. [cheers and applause] we've come so far. we've come so far. so why are we having to fight in 2012 against politicians who want to end access to birth control? it's like we woke up on a bad episaid of -- episode of "madmen." because when mitt romney says he will get rid of planned parenthood and turn the clock back on a century of progress, it has real quoanses for the three million patients who commend demand on planned parenthood. women like libby bruce who you just heard from or brandy mckay, a 27-year-old woman whose stage two breast cancer was caught at a planned parenthood health center and thank god she's now cancer free. [cheers and applause] or the woman who went on facebook after paul ryan voted to defund planned parenthood and posted, well, i guess they don't understand that us military wives go to planned patienthood when the doctor on base can't see us. [cheers and applause] so mr. romney and mr. ryan are campaigning for women's votes by saying that women need their help. okay. this is coming from two men who are committed to ende
secretary, casts all 188 votes for the president and the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> the convention wraps up tonight with speeches from vice president biden and, of course, the big speech from president obama. the vice president did pay a visit to the time warner cable arena yesterday for a walk-through on the stage. the vice president getting a feel for what he'll be looking at later tonight. now, the vice president and the president were supposed to give their speeches outdoors in front of 74,000 people at bank of america stadium. but democrats had to move the speech back inside because of weather concerns. by the way, that change in venue means they're not going to have any balloons. no balloon drop at a convention. the bottom of the hour we talk to margaret hoover and richard socarides. >>> former president clinton did not do it in his speech, neither did mitt romney. that's why u.s. service members will be listening to president tonight to see if he mentions the war in afghanistan. we go live to kabul, coming up.

, the president of the united states happened to be a person who is deeply rooted in god and it is a major important part of him and a reason why i personally came to this president because he expressed that. for the last four years there has been a huge attempt to talk about his faith. this party reflects all viewpoints that is good. we know this is a budget who is drive were by his faith and respects all viewpoints. >>shepard: would it have been, it looks what you are doing is acknowledging the fact that in your, yours is the big tenth party, eightist, arab americans, all different kinds of faith and lack of faith and you acknowledge that by leaving that out. why not just own it. clearly that was happening. >>guest: this is probably the one place in our discussion --. >>shepard: we will not discuss it. >>guest: the reality is, i have had massive number of discussions and we are talking about the economy that the president is running on his record. that is something we spent most of time talking about, the facts we want to move forward on all sorts of different issues in this country. whe
